Law Society welcomes Court of Appeal investment

05/12/2018

The Society has warmly welcomed plans to increase the number of ordinary judges on the Court of Appeal from nine to fifteen.

Comment from Ken Murphy

“The Court of Appeal has been a runaway success story since it first opened its doors in 2014. However, to this point, and despite the best efforts of Courts’ staff, resources have been insufficient to keep up with demand,” said Director General Ken Murphy. “Justice delayed is justice denied. This much needed investment in the Court will further improve access to justice for the public, whether commercial businesses or ordinary citizens, by reducing waiting times.”
